The Youth Empowerment Project (YEP), a four-year project launched in February 2017 aims to support the economic development of The Gambia and improve the livelihoods of its people. Specifically, the YEP will enhance the employability and self-employment opportunities for youth, with a focus on vocational training and the creation of micro and small-sized enterprises and creating and improving employment opportunities in selected sectors through value addition and internationalization.

The objective of the SkYE Fund is to provide skills training to youth to meet existing job needs or in the case of self-employment, successfully meet market opportunities. Training programmes supported under the SkYE Fund must meet an identified skill shortage and lead to work or to the establishment of small viable businesses.

The National Accreditation and Quality Assurance Authority (NAQAA) will provide local technical assistance to the implementation and monitoring of the SkYE Fund.
